Come and have a look around on Friday, 27th or Saturday, 28th.
On Friday, 27th and Saturday, 28th March, the hall will be open from 10.00am to 3.00pm to enable everyone to drop in and see all the new facilities. We hope to see lots of you there.
At 12.30pm on 27th, Jonathan Lord MP will formally re-open the Community Hall, there will be refreshments, and entertainment by SingGold — Goldsworth Park’s Community Choir.
Following a major refurbishment taking over two years, the Community Hall at Goldwater Lodge is open for business once more. The GPCA is very grateful to Woking Borough Council for all the resources they have put into making the building probably the best “village hall” in the Borough.
When you visit, you will see lots of changes for the better. The main hall and the remodelled snug bar now have top quality wood effect vinyl flooring and much improved lighting including dimmable fluorescent lights and perimeter spot lights to create a party atmosphere.
In the snug bar, some of the padded benches have been retained and these have been augmented by small tables and chairs — much more comfortable than the old wooden stools!
Forced fresh air ventilation will prevent the building getting too hot during summer parties.

The kitchen, which now opens off the snug bar, has also had an upgrade and we have new stainless steel appliances thanks to the generosity of the Surrey County Councillors for Goldsworth Park, Saj Hussain and Colin Kemp, who used some of their funding allocations to enable us to buy a new range cooker and fridge freezers.
We are busy getting everything ready for hiring the hall out for parties, meetings and regular activities. News of the reopening is getting around and we already have a number of bookings so, if you have a special birthday or other event to celebrate, get in touch now. Look on the website www.ourqoldsworthpark.orguk for details of the hall and how to hire it or call the Hall Manager on 07958 672203 or email hallmanagerourgoldsworthpark.org.uk.
